The world seems quieter to me at that time and I can focus. Sometimes
I think of writing ideas/topics while walking along the beach; while people watching.
Typically, a topic or idea will develop in my head over several days and I will write it out late at night after it has consumed all of my thoughts.
Nevertheless, there is no official protocol to my writing style outside of a peaceful environment.
I am inspired by real life situations and my ideas stem from everything around me (family, friends, news, pain, songs, images, etc.).
The physical items that are important to my writing process include: Final Draft, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Photoshop, Illustrator and Twine.
A major change I've made in my life in order to make space and time for writing is staying home more.
I've learned that it can be detrimental to leave my ideas unattended for too long. They revert to a wild state almost overnight, so, I've learned to visit them every day.
My greatest writing challenge centered on procrastination. I felt that my best work came out when a deadline approached.
In those crunch time moments I blocked out other issues plaguing my mind and focused solely on the task at hand. But, this practice didn't come without an added amount of stress and anxiety.
If I am having writer’s block or just not feeling in the mood, I’ll do something completely contradictory rather than stare at a blank page (e.g., cleaning, cooking, crafting, watching a movie, etc.) and return later to get it done.
